In the Midwest we don’t have the jagged peaks or deep canyons others do, but we do have trails to run and hike, rivers to canoe and kayak, and forests to explore. In winter we make do with ski hills, ride fat tire bikes, and snowshoe, amongst many outdoor activities.
Finding adventure in my backyard: trail running, hiking, camping, snowshoeing, and pretty much want to try everything outdoors, at least once. I’m a TNFLocals and Tubbs Snowshoes Ambassador.
Travel is in my blood, and I get out as often as I can. Part of my wandering is to expand my own experiences, but just as often it’s a preview of what I might want to share with my children. We’ve had some wonderful adventures, both at home and abroad. As my children become older, I’m finding that our adventures keep changing too. Follow along as I share the best that the Midwest (and wherever else we travel) has to offer in terms of travel, adventure, and family fun in the great outdoors.
